Unique, Time-Travelling, Well-Made Ceramics: Stranger Design

Stranger Design is a ceramics company that creates house ware product that are unique, designed, and from the future: in other words, STRANGE. Molly Bradford, operator of Stranger Design, joined us before in December 2017 and was a comfortable fit. Her use of colours and texture on ceramics was mesmerising. We are elated to have her back! You can keep up with Molly's day-to-day design life on instagram (@stranger_design_) and read on down below to see who Molly's designer/maker/creative crushes are! ♥♥♥


Q: What draws you to making/designing things?
SD: I like to make, just to see what might happen.

Q: What’s new for your line/business this spring?
SD: For Spring I’ve been focusing on a lot of vases and flower pots with minimal decoration.


Q: What’s in your designer/maker/creative plans for 2018:
SD: This year I want to stretch my hand building muscles and use a slab roller to create some new forms.

Q: Tell us about a few of your designer/maker/creative crushes: 
SD: I don’t think I would be alone in admitting my huge crush on potter Helen Levi and her pal, woodworker, Ariele Alasko. Also, Eric Roinestad is practically a potter from outer space and I love his work. It looks like a bunch of perfect shapes glued together, but very elegant.
